HAIRPIN LACE

Hairpin lace staple and a crochet hook are required.
Make a loose ch on hook, drop loop off hook and insert the left hand prong of staple upwards into loop. Draw loop until the knot is in the center between the prongs. Bring the thread in front around the right hand prong and insert hook in loop around the left hand prong drawing the thread through and making a ch st. * Do not draw out the loop on hook, turn the hook upwards so it parallels the prongs, pass it between the prongs to the back of the staple. Turn the staple over to the left (making a loop over right prong). Insert crochet hook up through the front thread of loop at left and work an s c. Repeat from * until prongs are filled with loops, slip loops off, replace prongs into the last 4 loops and continue work for desired length.
